This is the first tea from my June Sipsby Tea Box. It’s been a long time since I had an unflavoured matcha and this one is so very very green. I think I got 2 servings, which isn’t bad.
Made as a slightly sweetened hot matcha latte, adding a bit of hot water to 1/2 tsp of matcha, letting the sugar melt, frothing with my milk frother stick and then adding 8 oz of hot milk.
This is good. Very umami, vegetal flavour. The taste lingers in the corners of the back of my throat. Like it’s attracted to my tonsils or something. Pleasant, but not spectacular. I think I prefer flavoured matcha, though I will have no trouble drinking the other serving of this. Though I think I will stick to the matcha latte format as I think it would be a little too strong in the traditional preparation.
As always, when I added this tea to the database, I was completely unable to add a picture. Apologies, it just doesn’t seem to work for me.
Flavors: Umami, Vegetal
